School News & Updates

Hello everyone, Mrs Berry here, the last time I wrote Uganda was in a very strict lockdown & I said I hoped I would have better news in my next update. ……I do! I’m delighted to report that Uganda came out of their strict lockdown at the start of August. Their COVID infection numbers have  also decreased. 
    World Vision, who organises the sponsorship for us sent the school a letter from Peace with some recent news. She is still not back at school yet but World Vision have sent out school packs.

We are sending Peace a small parcel, hopefully you can see what we sent in the photo below! I will be going around the classes to show them the contents & to collect any sponsorship money the children have brought in. Thanks to all in advance…your money really helps Peace & her community in Uganda.

Mrs Berry here with the last update for this school year. I have both good news and bad news….

First the good news, over the year, even with 2 months of Home Learning we raised over €380 to support Peace and her community in Uganda. This is a fantastic achievement…Thanks & Well done to all those who brought money in over the year. We also sent an End of Year parcel to Peace,  including a dress and an Ireland Colouring Set.

The bad news is that Uganda has just started another lockdown, which means no school for Peace. The rules are much stricter than for us as they include an evening curfew & virtually no car journeys are allowed! Fortunately the numbers of people who are seriously ill are very low. I’m hoping by my next update in September I’ll have all positive news!

Thanks again for everyone’s contributions, they make a great difference to Peace & her community.
